Dear Santa…

Our name is Crieff Hydro, we’re 147 years old and, not to brag but, we’ve been really good this year! Of course, there’s been the occasional slip up – a spilt coffee here and there, the odd queue at check-in and, yes, we might have tried to convince our guests that we’d be replacing all our beds with Waterbeds on April Fool’s Day – but, on the whole, just exemplary behaviour.

If you don’t believe us you can check our TripAdvisor page but there’s really no need because we wouldn’t lie to you Santa. We love you! So… we’re on the nice list, right?! Of course we are.

Anyway, let’s not beat around the bush any longer here Mr Claus – it’s wish list time!

  1. We might need to borrow a couple of reindeer next year… is that cool? It doesn’t have to be Rudolph. We’re not stupid Santa. We know his schedule is just chock-a-block with celebrity parties, carrot eating, probably a Whitehouse visit in the mix there somewhere. But how about a couple of the other guys? Are Dancer and Prancer available? What about Blitzen? Surely Blitzen has some room in his schedule!
  2. Next, we’re not sure whether this really comes under your remit or not but we have a couple of chefs in our kitchen – Nikki and Beth – and they make some insanely good sweet treats. Seriously Santa, if you ever get bored of Mrs Claus’ mince pies and the Christmas Eve milk and cookies then you should swing by the Winter Garden – there’s even a gingerbread Hydro!

    Anyway, the point is that we need you to make sure they never leave. Ever. Hypnosis, bribery, blackmail (maybe not blackmail)… we don’t care how Santa, just make it happen. We won’t give up those cakes without a fight.
  3. We’re going to need you to keep up the good work you’ve been doing at our Grotto – that one’s a no brainer. Thanks for talking your wife in to it this year as well, the kids love her.
  4. What else? Ooh! We need you to find our Toy Story 3 DVD because it’s getting ridiculous now and if we don’t find out what Woody, Buzz and the gang have been up to before Toy Story 4 comes out we’re going to be totally lost and there will be tears!
  5. Lastly, can you find out when this whisky was bottled for us? None of our guests know, Twitter failed us and our Stephen is beginning to give up hope!

That’s all

We know you’re busy so we won’t take up any more of your time but just a gentle reminder to please just use the front entrance this year – it takes housekeeping hours to get the soot out of the carpet in the Highlandman Room!

We’ll leave the mince pie and carrots in the usual place.

Lots of love,

Crieff Hydro
